Charles “Rusty” E. Larimer, 76, of Bellefonte, passed away on Monday, May 3, 2021, at Mount Nittany Medical Center. Born on July 18, 1944 in Bellefonte, he was the son of the late Herbert F. and Mildred (Mann) Larimer. On May 27, 1967 he married the love of his life, Charlotte (Burch) Larimer, who survives at home after sharing nearly 54 years of marriage together.

Rusty was a 1962 graduate of Bellefonte High School. After high school, he served in the United States Air Force from July 1962 until he was honorably discharged in in June 1966. Rusty worked for Verizon for 35 years until his retirement. He worked part time in retirement at Triangle Building and Supplies.

In addition to his wife, Charlotte, he is survived by their two sons, Scott and Brian Larimer, and four grandchildren. Also surviving are his two sisters.

Along with his parents, he was preceded in death by six brothers.

Rusty was very active in several organizations, including Bellefonte Little League, Cub Scouts, YMCA Cadet Basketball, and was a proud officer and member of the Bellefonte Red Raider Booster Club. He was also an active participant in Bellefonte’s Victorian Christmas Breakfast with Santa, State College’s Tree Lighting Ceremony, and various other Christmas time activities. He loved being able to help spread the Christmas spirit and all the magic that goes along with it through multiple generations in our community.

Funeral services and burial will be private at the convenience of the family. Arrangements are under the direction of Wetzler Funeral Service, Inc. in Bellefonte.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Rusty’s memory to the Logans Fire Company at 120 E. Howard Street, Bellefonte, PA 16823.
